How did you hone your craft?

Anyone can take a picture of their dog, but as a Pet Photographer my knowledge goes well beyond a high-quality camera. I flourish by using professional skill to quickly assess light balance, where to direct focus and more, not to mention knowing how to read and respond properly to animal behavior is where the real art is created. ​ I come from a background of doing creative and beauty portraits with Custom Design Portraits. I had studied and mastered the art of posing clients to flatter any and all body shapes. But when I decided to make the switch to specialize in Pet Photography I began studying dog training and behavior. I also have a very natural calm way of working with pets.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

Practice commands. If you don’t regularly use obedience commands for older pets, be sure to practice them a few days before the photo shoot to make sure your pet will do what you and the photographer ask when asked. Make sure your pet (mostly dogs) responds to sit, stay and lay. If you want to incorporate any special tricks during the photo shoot, be sure to practice those too. Most new born pets are too young to know commends, don’t worry. Pets R Family takes pride in being able to work with pets, their personalities, and level of training.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

My photography is for those who love their pets and want to preserve the beauty and love you have for them with one-of-a-kind images. ​ Not only do you want to preserve these times and moments, but you want to put them on display in a way that will make you smile every single day. I know that's how I fell about my Fur babies. ​ I'll help you every step of the way to create images and an experience that are perfect for you and your pet
